GALLERY: Families enjoy free outdoor puppet show in Littleport
A free puppet show was organised for families in Littleport, just before the recent lockdown measures were introduced.
An audience of around 80 people from Highfields enjoyed the colourful and entertaining performance of The Lost Colour by the Half A String Theatre Company.
The event was sponsored by homebuilder Cannon Kirk and run by The Library Presents, which aims to bring the arts into towns and villages across Cambridgeshire.
Nathan Jones, from The Library Presents, said: “Half a String Puppet Theatre Company delivered an innovative and fun show.
“We were so pleased that the weather stayed good and over 80 people were able to enjoy some high-quality live entertainment throughout the day.”
He added that following positive feedback from families who attended and enjoyed the show, similar events could be organised for the future.
The Lost Colour, which was performed in Littleport on top of a van, featured the story of Malcolm Brushnell, a professional painter and amateur alchemist who sets out to find the pinky-est pink on the planet.
